    @dekreel,

    Ironically growing up I didn’t read much. When I did read it was the occasional American Girl book and Nacy Drew. And the “My Name is America” Historical fiction journals. Those were probably my fav.

    • the Sugar Creek Gang series
    • the Guardians of Ga’hoole series by Kathryn Lasky. (She’s the only author I remember) 🙂

    Never underestimate the power of the Pen.

    @dekreel I was a reading monster when I was kid.

    Ironically I didn’t really read that many kids books, I started with Harry Potter when I was 8, along with the Hobbit and then Eragon

    When I was younger than that, I loved the Magic Treehouse. I mean LOVED them. Also, I read the Boxcar Children a little bit.

    And also Narnia! How could I forget Narnia? Narnia was my favorite of all when I was younger

    @supermonkey42  @sam-kowal  What were your favorite Tree House books? I likes that magical saga about… Oh, it was a wand, and they were trying to find happiness for a magician (I forgot his name!) who lived in Camelot. And there were certain rules one had to follow in order for the wand to work.

    @dekreel I can’t even remember them all

    I read so many of them

    I can remember the first one with the dinos

    And there was one on the moon, and one in the sea, and one in prehistoric times, and one about the Civil War and one about the revolutionary war and one about Rome and one about Egypt…

    And then there the Merlin Missions, which where more fantasy. And Jack and Annie met Tommy and… Katie I think? There were loads and load of Merlin Missions I read. I can’t even remember them all. Not that I think of it, Mary Pope Osborne was a really prolific writer.

    @dekreel *cracks knuckles* Fun thread idea. Let’s see… *searches memory* Well, I dearly loved My Father’s Dragon. My fascination with dragons started at a young age, you see. I also really liked the first Boxcar Children book, The Family Under the Bridge (A children’s book about the Great Depression. Now, there’s a thought.), The Cricket in Times Square, and the Magic Treehouse books. And- I saved my favorite for last- the Secret Garden! I was crazy about it. I’m a professional book nerd, since I have years of experience, starting with that book. *gets sentimental and weepy* *just kidding, although now I need to read that one again*

    @inkling-for-christ I read those historical fiction books! They were quite good. 😀

    But not without regard for the double negative!

    @dekreel I read most of the Mandie books by Lois Gladys Leppard, and I devoured the old Nancy Drew and Hardy boys books. I also read a lot of historical books like little house on the prairie, and other pioneer type books, though I don’t really remember the titles now, haha.

    @alia *gasp* The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin!!! I love that boooook!

    @dekreel You know, surprisingly for the writer I am, I read so little. I really only read the Magic Tree House, but I love them. All of them!! They were great! And are, may I add. But yeah, I’ve always had a problem of not reading much. I’l admit I didn’t read the Chronicles of Narnia until I was 13ish.

    My brother read the Chronicles of Narnia to me when I was 8, and I’ve been hooked ever since.

    The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

    The Old Meadow by whoever-it-is-who-wrote Cricket in Times Square

    The Mistmantle Chronicles by M.I.McAllister

    The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth Speare (i think)

    The Lost Prince by Frances Hodgson Burnett (this book totally deserves to be made into a movie)

    Wrinkle in Time, The Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L’Engle

    Boxcar Children, Little House books, Magic Treehouse

    and then all the numerous books I read for my curriculum…

    By the way, if I could pop in a couple book recommendations, I just read A Time to Die by Nadine Brandes—about a girl in a dystopian world who finds God’s purpose for her. 👍🏻 The other was The City in the Lake by Rachel Neumeier. I was suprised by the richness of descriptions and depth brought to the characters. Also a good study in effective symbolism! (*Side note: One of the characters is referred to by a name I would normally consider objectionable, but in this case it’s only used in the technical sense of the word and not as an insult. Also contains magic and mages, if you aren’t comfortable with that. [However, the distinction between good and evil was clear, at least to me.])

    Oh. That was an incredibly long post. I’M SORRY *runs away screaming*
